Fort Wayne, Ind., Parks Department officials told the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette last week the squirrel got into the electrical equipment of the building in McMillen Park on April 1, causing a power surge that damaged the heating and air conditioning systems and some parts of the boiler system.

This Is the Year to Cheat the IRS Budget cuts force agency to dial back on tax-return audits

As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday’s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service’s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered. “We keep going after the people who look like the worst of the bad guys,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview. “But there are going to be some people that we should catch, either in terms of collecting the revenue from them or prosecuting them, that we’re not going to catch.” Better technology is helping to offset some budget cuts.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen says the agency will miss some tax cheats.

If you report making $40,000 in wages and your employer tells the IRS you made $50,000, the agency’s computers probably will catch that. The same is true for investment income and many common deductions that are reported to the IRS by financial institutions. But if you operate a business that deals in cash, with income or expenses that are not independently reported to the IRS, your chances of getting caught are lower than they have been in years. Last year, the IRS audited less

than 1 percent of all returns from individuals, the lowest rate since 2005. This year, Koskinen said, “The numbers will go down.” S t i l l , m o s t p e o p l e d o n’t have much of an opportunity to cheat on their taxes, said Elizabeth Maresca, a former IRS lawyer who now teaches law at Fordham University. Your employer probably reports your wages to the IRS, your bank reports interest income, your broker reports investment income and your lender reports the amount of interest you paid on your mortgage. “Anybody who’s an employee, who gets paid by an employer, has a limited ability to take risks on their tax returns,” Maresca said. “I think people who own their own business or are self-employed have a much greater opportunity [to cheat], and I think the IRS knows that, too.” Koskinen said the IRS could scrutinize more returns — and collect billions more in revenue — with more resources. The president’s budget proposal says the IRS would collect an additional $6 for every $1 increase in the agen-

cy’s enforcement budget. Koskinen said he makes that argument all the time, but for some reason, it’s not playing well in Congress. “I say that and ever ybody shrugs and goes on about their business,” Koskinen said. “I have not figured out either philosophically or psychologically why nobody seems to care whether we collect the revenue or not.” STEPHEN OHLEMACHER (AP)

Case to Shed Light On Gitmo’s Camp 7 U.S. is accused of mistreating inmates in Guantanamo jail Attorney James Connell has visited his client inside the secret Guantanamo prison complex known as Camp 7 only once, taken in a van with covered windows on a circuitous trek to disguise the route on the military base. Connell is allowed to say virtually nothing about what he saw in the secret camp where the most notorious terror suspects in U.S. custody are held except that it is unlike any detention facility he’s encountered. The Camp 7 prison unit is so shrouded in secrecy that its location on the U.S. base in Cuba is classified and officials refuse to discuss it. But an ongoing court case is forcing it into the limelight. Today, a judge in Guantanamo will open a hearing into the sanity of a Camp 7 prisoner, Ramzi bin al-shibh, whose courtroom outbursts about alleged mistreatment in Camp 7 have halted the effort to try five men in the Sept. 11 attacks, all of whom are held there.

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Camp 7 is the most secretive part of the already secret Guantanamo Bay prison.

Bin al-shibh has accused the government of making noises and vibrations inside Camp 7 to deliberately keep him awake. Military officials deny doing anything intentional to disrupt his sleep. Prosecutors say his accusations are delusions, though they still believe he is mentally competent to stand trial. Military officials, while insisting that they adhere to international human rights standards, refuse to describe Camp 7. “I’m not even functionally allowed to discuss the place,” said Army Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale, a Pentagon spokesman. BEN FOX (AP)

Chatter From the Sunday Talk Shows ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

ON DEFENSE SPENDING

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel, D-N.Y., told CNN’s “State of The Union” that “to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that’s unfortunate.”

On ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said although he believes “national defense is the most important thing we do,” he thinks defense spending needs to be controlled. He criticized “some conservatives” who “play up this patriotism” when it comes to authorizing increased military spending. (E XPRESS)

Ukraine Deploying Troops to Ease Unrest Slovyansk, Ukraine Ukraine is deploying troops in a “large-scale anti-terrorist operation” to resist attacks by armed proRussian forces, Ukraine’s President Oleksandr Turchynov said on Sunday in a televised address. Turchynov said the Ukrainian Security Council decided to use the army because “we’re not going to allow Russia to repeat the Crimean scenario in Ukraine’s east.” He

pledged amnesty to anyone who laid down arms by this morning. U k ra i n ia n spec ia l forces exchanged gunfire with a pro-Russia militia outside an eastern city Sunday morning, with one security officer killed and five others wounded. It was the first reported gunbattle in eastern Ukraine, where armed pro-Russian men have seized a number of government buildings in recent days. Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has described such attacks as “Russian aggression.” He said in a Facebook post Sunday that special forces of up to 12,000 people will be drawn from volunteers who will be tasked

with resisting attacks from proRussian forces in their local areas. Russia’s Foreign Ministry was quick to dismiss Turchynov’s decree as “criminal” and accused Ukrainian officials of using radical neoNazi forces. The former Ukrainian interior minister, Vitaliy Zakharchenko, warned of “provocations” in the coming days to “discredit Russian armed forces.” Russia has tens of thousands of troops deployed along its border with Ukraine, which has raised fears of a military incursion, especially after the takeover of the Crimean Peninsula.

Yanukovych Speaks Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych claimed Sunday that CIA director John Brennan had met with Ukraine’s new leadership and “in fact sanctioned the use of weapons and provoked bloodshed.” Speaking on Russian state television hours after Ukraine President Oleksandr Turchynov’s address, Yanukovych said Ukraine now has “one foot into a civil war.” A CIA spokesman said the “claim that director Brennan encouraged Ukrainian authorities to conduct tactical operations inside Ukraine is completely false.” (AP)

Is the Era of Neighborhood Schools Over? D.C. parents debate proposals to overhaul school assignments Washington Mayor Vincent Gray’s proposals to overhaul the District’s school boundaries and the policies that decide how students are assigned to schools are bound in a hefty book. But buried within the details is a central question that has riveted parents: Is D.C. ready to give up on neighborhood schools in favor of expanded lottery admissions? City officials say the effort to retool how students are matched

aims to improve education by making sense of a complex system that leaves some schools nearly empty while others face overcrowding. But their proposals pit the rising philosophy of school choice, which aspires to untether the quality of a child’s education from his ZIP code, against a long-standing ideal: The school down the block serves as the anchor for the community. The suggestion of an overhaul has triggered a firestorm of protest, particularly in affluent upper Northwest, where many families bought homes based on the promise of the right to attend good schools nearby. Though the plans have stoked concern, neighborhood schools

“We ought to be able to work together to make sure that every neighborhood in the city has a quality school, not just fight each other for what’s left over.” — JEFF GUMBINNER, A FATHER OF TWO STUDENTS AT MURCH ELEMENTARY, CALLING FOR A HALT TO VINCENT GRAY’S EFFORT AND A PUSH TO IMPROVE LOW-PERFORMING SCHOOLS

are already a thing of the past. Just 25 percent of D.C. children attend their assigned neighborhood schools. The rest attend charter schools, outof-boundary traditional schools or selective magnet high schools. One of Gray’s proposals would maintain the system of neighborhood schools with a percentage of seats set aside for out-of-bound-

ary students. Two others contemplate replacing neighborhood high schools with a citywide lottery. Most D.C. parents say they share the ideal of building community via a neighborhood school, but many do not see sending their children to neighborhood schools as realistic. One self-described low-income mother who lives in Ward 8 said

she would prefer that her son didn’t have to wrestle with public transit to get to an out-of-boundary middle school across the Anacostia River. “I want awesome schools in every neighborhood,” said the mother. But her neighborhood schools aren’t awesome right now, she said. Advocates of school choice say it is unrealistic to expect longstruggling neighborhood schools to improve. “We’ve tried for 50 years to turn around low-performing schools, and the history of it shows it seldom works,” said Andy Smarick, a longtime choice advocate who said the idea of neighborhood schools is quaint.

Throngs Descend on the District Washington For Antonio Sacchetti, the journey to witness D.C.’s famed cherry blossoms began Friday before dawn. At 6 a.m., he and his wife joined 100 other tourists from Montreal and embarked on a 12-hour bus trip. On Saturday morning, they got their first glimpses of the blossoms while they cruised in a yacht along the Potomac River. Up next? A trip to see the monuments, the White House and the Tidal Basin, where he would probably battle through throngs of blossom peepers. “No pain, no gain,” Sacchetti said. That mantra played out over the weekend as thousands descended on D.C. to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom, taking in the splendor of the day along with the frustrations of epic crowds. This year’s peak was somewhat unusual, as it coincided with the culmination of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. “You’re going to see some gridlock,” said Fred Rapaport, the owner of DC Cruises, who said his yacht tours had sold out for the day. Aboard the Harbour Belle, Rapaport blasted the Pharrell Williams tune “Happy” as he encouraged the

Montreal tourists to tap their feet. Indeed, it seemed as if everyone in D.C. had the same idea: Let’s head down to the Tidal Basin. Revelers spread out blankets for picnics. A proposal drew applause from an encouraging crowd. Dog walkers and joggers dodged the so-called speed bumps of the Tidal Basin path — the picture takers. One veteran tour guide joked

that a “duck and weave” strategy is a necessity to keep moving. “W hy is everyone stopped here?” one man said. His companion pointed to the Jefferson Memorial, which was perfectly framed in the background. “Well, when in Rome,” the man said, taking out his camera and stopping for a photo.

End of the Road for Caps The Capitals’ season came to an earlier-than-usual end Sunday after they failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2007. For a franchise with lofty expectations, the 2013-14 season will be remembered as an utter disappointment. With a pivotal offseason to come, what led to their demise? ADAM VINGAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Caps forward Alex Ovechkin scored an NHL-high 51 goals this season.

Identity Crisis

Washington’s blue line was young and inexperienced. The Capitals used a league-high 14 defensemen, half of which had fewer than 30 games of NHL experience entering the season. The defensive corps often resembled a minor-league unit and was regularly overmatched. A lack of continuity among the pairings that never allowed for chemistry to develop only exacerbated the problem and prevented the Capitals from effectively breaking out.

Throughout the season, Washington’s self-inflicted mistakes developed into self-destructive habits. Among the most notorious, Washington blew 13 two-goal leads (including six in the third period alone), handing away standings points that ultimately proved costly. The Capitals also allowed 29 goals within two minutes of scoring one themselves, which killed any momentum. The Capitals simply could not get out of their own way.

Even-strength play was a glaring weakness. The Capitals were one of the worst puckpossession teams in the NHL, and they failed to generate consistent offense during fiveon-five play, scoring 2.11 goals per 60 minutes (ninth-fewest) while allowing 2.39 (10th-most) as of Sunday. Those evenstrength struggles rendered Washington one-dimensional as it became heavily dependent on its vaunted power play, which accounted for nearly a third of its total offense.

There were plenty of questionable personnel decisions: A midseason threegoalie logjam, playing top-six acquisitions Martin Erat and Dustin Penner on the fourth line and placing superstar Alex Ovechkin alongside grinder Jay Beagle in the midst of a playoff chase were among the most head-scratching. These decisions seemed to speak to a difference of opinion between coach Adam Oates and general manager George McPhee, who both may be on the hot seat.

The Capitals seemed to change their style of play on a game-to-game basis throughout this season. Some nights, they attempted to play a grind-’em-out way, though they were the only team in the league not to win a game when scoring two or fewer goals. Other nights, they adopted a more offensive approach. The only constant was that neither way proved successful enough to vault them into the playoffs.

Four years ago, as the Capitals were about to clinch the Presidents’ Trophy with the best regular-season record in the NHL, owner Ted Leonsis declared that his team had arrived as one of the league’s elite. “Alex and the Caps are going to win Stanley Cups,” Leonsis said during an interview on 106.7FM, referring to the club’s goalscoring forward, Alex Ovechkin. In the four seasons since, the Capitals have gone through three coaches, four styles of play and six goaltenders. But no version has advanced past the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. This season, the Capitals surpassed that level of disappointment by failing to reach the postseason for the first time since 2007. “I want to conduct a comprehensive review of what transpired this year,” Leonsis wrote on his blog Thursday. “Listen to appropriate voices and then determine what steps are necessary to ensure the Capitals return to the playoffs and compete for a Stanley Cup.” KATIE CARRERA (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Lightning 1, Capitals 0 (SO): The Capitals’ season ended with a 1-0 shootout loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday. Matthew Carle scored the only goal in the shootout. Alex Ovechkin finished with an NHL-leading 51 goals. The shootout was Washington’s NHL-record 21st of the season. The Capitals were 10-11 in those games; Ovechkin went 2-for-16 in shootouts, including a miss Sunday. (AP)

Diabetes & Weight?

Bubba Does It Again Watson captures his second Masters title in past three years Golf Bubba Watson’s second Masters title was nothing like the green jacket he won two years ago. The only daring shot Watson hit was one he really didn’t need. The wild swing in momentum came on the front nine, not the back nine of Augusta National. And the sweetest difference of all Sunday was seeing his 2-year-old son walk toward him on the edge of the 18th green after his three-shot victory over Jordan Spieth. Watson joined an elusive group as the 17th player to win the Masters more than once. He turned a two-shot deficit into a two-shot lead on the final two holes of the front nine, then

Not Yet for Spieth Jordan Spieth, 20, was trying to become the youngest major champion since 1931 and the youngest Masters winner ever.

Spieth finished second at 5-under after shooting a final-round 72. (AP)

kept Spieth, 20, and everyone else at safe distance the rest of the way. Watson closed with a 3-under 69 to beat a pair of Masters rookies in Spieth and Jonas Blixt of Sweden. Two years ago, when he hit that wild hook out of the trees on the 10th hole to win in a playoff, his

wife and newly adopted son were watching at home in Florida. This time, young Caleb was decked out in a green-and-white striped Masters shirt and green tennis shoes as he waddled over to his father. “This one’s a lot different,” Watson said. “The first one, for me, it was almost like I lucked into it.” After high-fiving the crowd on his way to sign his card, Watson returned to Butler Cabin to take back that green jacket he slipped on Adam Scott a year ago. “After giving it away last year, I wanted it back,” Watson said. “I told Adam we could just swap it back and forth every year.” Miguel Angel Jimenez, the 50-year-old from Spain, shot 71 and finished alone in fourth. Matt Kuchar lost a share of the lead with a fourputt double bogey on the fourth hole and never challenged again. He closed with a 74 and tied for fifth with Rickie Fowler. DOUG FERGUSON (AP)

10-Year-Old Joins Wizards for a Day: On Saturday, the Wizards welcomed a new face to their team. Ten-year-old Amaris Jackson, who is battling a rare kidney cancer known as renal cell carcinoma, signed a one-day contract with the Wizards in conjunction with the Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic Foundation. As part of her one-day experience as a Wizard, Jackson took part in the pregame shootaround, visited the locker room and led the team onto the court. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez allowed a first-inning homer to Justin Upton.

Woes vs. Braves Continue for Nats Washington has lost five of six to Atlanta in 2014 after sweep Nationals Justin Upton and Freddie Freeman each hit a two-run homer off Gio Gonzalez and the Atlanta Braves completed a three-game sweep of the Nationals with a 10-2 victory Sunday. Beating Washington for the 18th time in the last 25 series matchups, Atlanta is hoping to use another fast start against the Nationals to win a second straight NL East title. The Braves have won five of six against the Nationals this year. Washington managed just five hits off Aaron Harang (2-1), who allowed one run, one walk and

struck out five in six innings. Gonzalez (2-1) continued his struggles against the Braves, giving up nine hits, six runs and four walks and striking out six in six innings. Despite ranking second in the majors among left-handers with 34 wins since the start of 2012, Gonzalez is 2-7 with a 5.31 ERA in 10 starts against the Braves during that span. Gonzalez’s struggles began in the first. After walking leadoff hitter Jason Heyward, Gonzalez made an errant underhanded throw to first baseman Adam LaRoche on B.J. Upton’s bunt single. The ball rolled away from LaRoche, allowing Heyward to advance to third and B.J. Upton to second. Freeman’s sacrifice fly scored Heyward, and Justin Upton homered to make it 3-0. Washington’s two scores came on Jose Lobaton’s RBI groundout in the fifth and a LaRoche home run in the ninth. GEORGE HENRY (AP)

Zimmerman Out 4-6 Weeks Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman tried to put a positive spin on his broken right thumb and the Nationals’ list of injuries. “Hopefully we’ll get all this out of the way,” he said, “and everyone will be healthy the rest of the year.” Zimmerman was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday and is expected to miss between four to six weeks. He was injured in the fifth inning of Saturday’s 6-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves while getting picked off as he dove back to second base. (AP)

Not Just MBAs

Logan Soya, 29, started an energy-management business while in the MBA program at Georgetown.

Startups on The Right Foot Programs tailored to entrepreneurs foster new businesses Business It’s not every day that a grad student finds himself in a closeddoor meeting with the head of the Department of Energy and former president Bill Clinton, talking about energy policy and jotting down ideas for a new startup. For Logan Soya, 29, it was one of a series of opportunities that helped him launch an energy management business in early 2011, during his

first semester of an MBA program at Georgetown University. Soya was at the meeting, which took place during the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, thanks to his Georgetown connections. “It was Georgetown … that provided the business the ability to mature and find the right market,” Soya says. His company, Aquicore (aqui core.com), provides companies with real-time monitoring and management of their electricity and other energy consumption. Small sensors installed throughout their building let clients know if they’re being wasteful or losing

money. One of the company’s biggest clients is the D.C. government, a contract that includes more than 400 office buildings, fire stations, schools and other facilities. Grad schools around the District are catering to the rising numbers of entrepreneurs-in-training — through classes, internships, mentorships and competitions meant to give students an edge when starting a business in the real world. “More and more young people are interested in entrepreneurship,” says Jeff Reid, director of the Entrepreneurship Initiative at Georgetown. “The university that doesn’t provide this is less likely to attract

Don’t assume that MBA students are the only ones launching startups: “There is a growing interest in master’s and Ph.D. students on commercializing technology that they create in their labs,” says the University of Maryland’s Elana Fine. Along with George Washington University and Virginia Tech, U-Md. is part of the DC I-Corps program (dcicorps.org), backed by the National Science Foundation, which helps translate research in fields like engineering and life sciences into new technologies and startups. At GW, many of the businesses launched by grad students are tech startups, including some science companies launched out of academic research there. While working on her Ph.D. in biophysics from the University of Maryland, Deborah Hemingway, 30, came up with the idea for CellTrace, a software tool for scientists that quantifies information seen in their microscopes. U-Md.’s Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship was a big help in figuring out the business, says Hemingway, who has also won about $5,000 in seed money from the center’s business competitions. “They taught me so much,” Hemingway says. E.B.

the best students.” You don’t have to look too far to find entrepreneurial programs in the Washington area. The University of Maryland’s Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship (bit .ly/1hlnNV6), which opened in 1987, is one of the oldest entrepreneurial studies program in the region. And the entrepreneurial enthusiasm has spread: Georgetown’s Entrepreneurship Initiative, or Startup Hoyas (startuphoyas .com), is a community formed to cater to students’ demand for entrepreneurial classes and other programs. George Washington University has an Office of

Entrepreneurship (entrepreneur ship.research.gwu.edu), focused on hands-on learning through internships and other real-world experiences, and the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence (bit .ly/OKf96H), focused on entrepreneurship research and classes. American University (bit.ly/ PUPoBS), even offers students an MBA with a concentration in entrepreneurship. These programs are out to disprove the adage that “entrepreneurs are born, not made.” While the urge to be a pioneer may be more nature than nurture, it seems some essential startup skills can be taught in a classroom, program administrators say. “Some would argue that academia has no business in entrepreneurship,” says Elana Fine, managing director of U-Md.’s Dingman Center. “That’s not really true.” Entrepreneurial skills can be taught just like medicine or chemistry or accounting, Fine says. Of course, following the curriculum won’t guarantee that every graduate is the next Mark Zuckerberg. “But you’re giving someone a skill set that they hopefully can apply when they identify a new opportunity,” Fine says. Classes on raising money, identifying customers, and launching and managing a new venture help students test drive ideas before they invest a lot of time and money, and perhaps eventually launch a business. “We focus ideas down into something that’s manageable,” says George Solomon, director of George Washington’s Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence. Like Soya, who launched Aquicore in his first year at Georgetown, many students don’t even wait until graduation to start their businesses. Between the first and second years of an MBA program at American University, Tim Richards, 27, started ReefCam (reefcam.tv), a Northern Virginia-based company that streams live, high-definition video of coral reefs and other marine environments to a computer or mobile app. You can stream for free with ads, or pay $9.99 a month Continued on page 18

In addition to providing a cool screensaver, ReefCam hopes to raise awareness about reef conservation, and gives 25 percent of its proceeds toward reef conservation, research and education. “It’s our way of putting [the reefs] right in front of the everyday casual nine-to-fiver,” says Richards, who graduated in May 2013. “Some people are never going to be lucky enough to see it in person.” Richards says study abroad programs when he was an undergrad and a grad student piqued his interest in other parts of the world. Then American helped him work out ideas in class and learn to cultivate and manage ReefCam. Jason McCa r t hy, 34, a lso drummed up business strategies in the classroom and then immediately tested them in the real world. Before starting his MBA at Georgetown, McCarthy had the idea for Goruck (goruck.com), a company that makes military-quality gear like “rucksacks,” or backpacks, and organizes intense endurance events to test out the gear. “I used Georgetown to incubate it,” says McCarthy, a former Green Beret. “I submitted applications to get tutorials taught about Goruck. It was like a live case study. [In class] we would look at what was going on, and I’d go home at night and make decisions.” Not every student with a startup entered grad school with business aspirations, though. Mariam Adil, 27, says her coursework at GWU inspired her to innovate. “Being at school made me realize that the way we’re taught development is very different than the way we do development [in the field],” she says. Now, with the help of GWU, she’s developing a business and working at World Bank, all while completing her master’s in international development. Her venture, GRID (strikingly .com/grid), is developing low-cost video games to teach people how to do international development work, such as how to monitor and evaluate projects overseas.

Grad schools are increasingly seeing women interested in their entrepreneurship programs. George Washington University’s George Soloman says in the past several years, female participation has increased from about 10-20 percent to 40-50 percent. GW has the Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Initiative (bit .ly/Q9QF7V), a series of courses designed with the input of businesswomen, Springboard Enterprises (sb.co), which helps women raise venture capital, and the Hot Mommas Project (hotmommasproject .com), which collects female business success stories. E.B.

GRID was a finalist in GWU’s Business Plan Competition, run by the school’s Office of Entrepreneurship. And immediate success is far from assured. As UMD MBA students, Derek Shewmon and Federico Campbell came up with the idea for their business, LetsMoveDown (letsmovedown.com), an app that allows teams and individuals to sell unused or extra tickets during a game, so spectators get an instant upgrade. “We thought there might be a unique opportunity,” Shewmon says. The idea didn’t take off at first, but Shewmon and Campbell persisted after graduation, and in 2012, signed on with their first client: the UMD men’s basketball team. Shewmon credits the school’s Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship with helping them refine the idea and business model, and landing their first client. LetsMoveDown has since expanded to nine college and professional sports teams. Even if students in these programs don’t launch their own business, they still benefit, says Jim Chung, executive director of George Washington’s Office of Entrepreneurship. “The sk ill sets t hey learn about innovation and idea generation are really skills they can use in any profession,” Chung says.

What a Fitting Career

GW's homeland security Webinar

A knack for costumes turns into a lasting theater role for Exton

Series

THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 1:00PM ET ONLINE

Randall Exton, 50 SALARY: $39,000

Caribbean Gulag? The Legal Evolution of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility

POSITION: Draper, Shakespeare The-

atre Co. (516 Eighth Street SE; 202-5471122; shakespearetheatre.org)

Exton what he does, he usually says, “I’m a pattern maker.” If that doesn’t do the trick, he says: “Do you know the show ‘Project Runway?’ That’s what I do.” As a draper at the Shakespeare Theatre Co., Exton’s job is to make the dreams of costume designers a reality. He takes renderings of what the actors will wear and makes them into patterns — basically maps for seamstresses to follow. Then two other theater employees cut the cloth and stitch the costumes together. Exton takes those makeshift costumes to the actors and oversees a series of fittings, until each outfit is perfected. “It’s a very old-world job that not many people do,” he says. And drapers aren’t only found in the theater: Some work at universities, helping produce college plays and teaching their skill. Others work for fashion designers, and some work on films. HOW HE GOT THE JOB: Exton says

he found his career by accident. In 1984, while getting his undergraduate degree at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, he needed a work-study job, and spotted an opening at the school theater’s costume shop. Exton had tried out his sister’s sewing machine in the past, but didn’t really know how to sew. “I said, ‘I’m sure I can fake it,’ because I really needed the job,” he says. After a while, his supervisor told him he had a knack for the craft, leading Exton to pursue a master’s degree in costume design and technology at Florida State University. Since then, he’s worked for dozens of regional theaters as a draper, including a long stint at the Washington National Opera. He landed a contract at the Shakespeare Theatre Co. five

WHAT HE DOES: When people ask

Randall Exton brings costume designers’ plans to life at Shakespeare Theatre Co.

years ago. Since many drapers stitch together temporary jobs and freelance work to make a living, Exton’s contract at the Shakespeare Co. is a rarity in the theater-draping world. WHO WOULD WANT THIS JOB:

You have to work well under pressure and have good time-management skills, Exton says. For a recent production of “The Importance of Being Earnest,” Exton had to create four costumes in a week and a half, from mock-up to finished product, with three fittings each. Sewing skills are a plus, and pattern-making can be learned as you go or picked up from classes or books. Drapers sometimes make “flat patterns,” taking the designer’s sketch and turning it into a 2-D schematic for cloth-cutting, using the actor’s measurements and certain formulas. Exton makes nearly all pants this way. But for nearly everything else, he first looks at the costume design, then drapes (yes, that’s where the name of the job comes from) cloth over a mannequin to mimic the design sketch. Then he marks the cloth at the appropriate places and creates the paper pattern. Having an eye for beauty doesn’t hurt; but great drapers are the perfect blend of “book smarts and talent,” Exton says.

Most importantly, drapers have to have the theater bug. “It has got to be your passion,” Exton says, “because you’re never going to get rich.” The recession hit the arts scene hard: Jobs can be hard to come by, and they don’t pay much. But Exton doesn’t let that bother him. “You can worry about it, but then you say: ‘This is what I love to do.’ ”

STEAL THIS JOB

HOW YOU CAN GET

THIS JOB: Most drapers have their master’s degrees in costume technology or design, like Exton, or have learned the tools of their trade in the fashion world. You can also learn a lot by teaching yourself with books on sewing and costumes, delving into the vast number of sewing tutorials on YouTube, or by attending a conference, like the annual U.S. Institute for Theatre Technology one (usitt.org). You can volunteer at a theater, or find internship programs like the one at Shakespeare Theatre Co. — Exton’s costume shop usually has three interns. Once you’ve developed your skills, expect to start small, working parttime gigs at local theaters before moving on to big-city, year-round theaters. And you can find freelance gigs by networking — or take a bolder approach and call costume directors directly and tell them you’re sew ready. LIZ ESSLEY WHYTE (FOR EXPRESS)

Lawyers Shift Gears

managing investor relations and devising growth strategies. It has six attorneys and a staff of about 10. Tandem prides itself on its antilaw firm culture. Co-founders Mike McDevitt and Randy Price use words like “fun” and “cool” when describing the kinds of companies they want to work with. Their clients are a snapshot of the Northeast region’s up-and-coming contingent of mission-driven businesses, such as Sweetgreen and Tessemae’s, the Maryland salad dressing maker.

Tandem in D.C. puts a modern spin on old-school law firms Trendsetters

Startup Appeal JEFFREY MACMILLAN (CAPITAL BUSINESS)

The first thing you notice when you walk into Tandem’s office in Penn Quarter — one floor down from Sweetgreen’s headquarters — is a tandem bike. It’s a symbol of Tandem’s philosophy, “B.I.K.E.,” which stands for “Be yourself, Innovate, Kindness and Engagement” — principles you’d be hard-pressed to find in the halls of Big Law, though Tandem is home to a number of alumni of large corporate firms. Tandem Legal Group, which opened its doors in March, is a law firm that advises on general business issues, such as raising capital,

Mike McDevitt, right, and Randy Price lead Tandem Legal Group in Washington, and tout their “B.I.K.E.” philosophy : “Be yourself, Innovate, Kindness and Engagement.”

The firm’s services are not entirely unique, but its ownership structure is. McDevitt is not a lawyer, and the District is the only jurisdiction that allows law firms to share profits with non-lawyers. Price linked up with McDevitt to form Tandem in 2013. The vast majority of their 20-plus clients do not have an in-house legal team, so Tandem takes on that role for them. “When you’re a startup, people

almost treat you like they’re doing you a favor, like ‘Oh, let me get to it when I get to it,’ ” Tessemae’s chief executive Greg Vetter said of other large and small law firms the company enlisted before moving all legal matters to Tandem. He even turns to McDevitt for business advice beyond legal issues.

Throwback Style Tandem looks and feels like a startup. All 15 employees work out of a single floor. There are no cubicle walls separating desks, and no suits and ties in sight. But t he bu si ne s s t he y ’re attempting to build — legal services with a business advisory component — is a throwback to what law firms were a generation ago, before they began growing into global behemoths. Its leaders acknowledge that they are not reinventing the wheel. “We’re building what law firms were 40 years ago,” McDevitt said. CATHERINE HO (CAPITAL BUSINESS)

TV TONIGHT 8 P.M.

‘2 Broke Girls’ (CBS) Lindsay Lohan, below, guest stars in this new episode as Claire Guinness, a bride-to-be who wants Caroline and Max to make her wedding cake. It soon becomes apparent that this won’t be an easy job — and not just because wedding cakes are tricky. Claire keeps changing her mind about everything.

Zooey Deschanel spent two years on a fashion line based on her own quirky style

Movies

Big Screen Return Zooey Deschanel is busy with a film called “Rock the Kasbah,” out later this year. “It’s a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis that Barry Levinson is directing. It’s about a failing music manager who goes to Afghanistan and discovers a young talent, and she goes on to be on ‘Afghan Idol,’ which is like ‘American Idol,’ and I play like a fun character role in the beginning.” (AP)

Q&A

9 P.M.

‘Dallas’ (TNT) The fallout from Pamela’s discovery of John Ross and Emma’s affair threatens Bobby and Ann’s marriage as well as their own. Christopher and Heather deal with the aftermath of Bo’s drastic act. Drew’s arrival tests Nicolas and Elena’s bond in the midseason finale.

GETTY IMAGES/EXPRESS ILLUSTRATION

Zooey Deschanel is almost bubbling over with excitement: Her show “New Girl” is a hit, she just released a pop song with Prince and now she’s sitting in a Tommy Hilfiger store filled with racks of dresses she helped design. It’s fitting, then, that bubbles are a theme of her new fashion collaboration with Hilfiger, To Tommy From Zooey. Deschanel spent two years working with the designer to create a collection of flirty frocks based on her personal style.

ART SHAY

There are 16 dresses in your new collection. Will Jess get to wear some on “New Girl”?

10 P.M.

‘Independent Lens’ (PBS) The new documentary “The Trials of Muhammad Ali” profiles one of the 20th century’s most beloved athletes, who was also one of its most controversial. It covers, among other things, the boxer’s draft evasion conviction, his conversion to Islam and his struggles with Parkinson’s disease.

She’s wearing three of them in the final episode, actually. It was really lucky. Everything took place on a boat, and I said to our costume designer, “Do you think it would be OK to put some of the dresses in the mix?” … So we got some press samples and then they all got chosen! They didn’t even know they were my dresses, either! Prince guest-starred on the show, and you have a single out together. Are you two buds now?

He’s very mysterious. I couldn’t venture to call him my bud. … He is incredibly nice and so generous and just so talented — a really won-

derful person and I feel lucky to know him. … The Prince thing was almost by accident, because [producers] said we’d like it if Jess goes up and sings with Prince, so I did a vocal for the sound department. They sent it to Prince, and the next day they’d mixed that vocal in ... and then they released it! As a producer, do you get a say in what happens with Jess and Nick,

who coupled up this season?

I do to some degree. My production role is more of an on-set role and keeping a lot of stuff going, helping the ship run. … So I’ll make suggestions, but I can’t be in the writers’ room because I’m on set all the time. I knew sort of where I wanted it to head and it did. This is obviously a relationship people are really invested in. And when they got us together last year, I knew that

they had to break up. But I knew that once we got them together, you need to pay your dues and have them together long enough that for evermore it will be the ghost that haunts these people. I think that makes for a really interesting fourth season and I’m really excited to get into that, because I think now is where it gets interesting. Between acting and music, plus your website HelloGiggles and now this fashion line, do you ever run out of creative juice?

That’s just how I keep going. I really never stop. It’s just if I’m getting tired in one creative outlet, I switch to another. With the website HelloGiggles, I co-founded it three years ago and it’s doing so well. … I’ve always had this theory and I stick by it and it kind of just works: If I like it, other people will like it. And it’s totally true! SANDY COHEN (AP)

Double the JLaw, Double the Money: Jennifer Lawrence is set to star in an adaptation of “East of Eden,” and director Gary Ross told the Hollywood Reporter he may split the story into two films. Ross, who directed Lawrence in the first “Hunger Games” movie, will write the films, based on John Steinbeck’s 602-page novel. Lawrence will play Cathy Ames, the wife of the novel’s protagonist, Adam Trask. (E XPRESS)

favor. I thought he was going to ask me to iron a shirt.” Instead, he pulled out the ring and asked if she would help him get it resized. THEIR SONG: “Honey Bee” by Blake Shelton, because “every time I left his place to drive home, it was on the radio.” STUPIDEST FIGHT: “I tried to make her bed for her one day. I guess I put the sheet and comforter wrong, because when she saw it, she pulled the covers off the bed and said, ‘Forget it!’ ” PET NAMES: She calls him “honey bee” because of their song. He calls her “ranga,” because his Australian cousins use that nickname for redheads (it’s short for “orangutan”).

Keyona Ham, Jevon Hargett Keyona, 33, is a budget analyst for a government contractor, and a singer and Zumba instructor. Jevon, 37, is a sous chef. They live in Suitland, Md. THE MAIN EVENT: They’ll wed this Sunday in Jamaica. HOW THEY MET: At a house party. Keyona was singing.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: “I turned to my cousin and told him I would have her number by the end of the night.” “I thought, ‘OK, here’s another dude.’ ” FIRST DATE: She visited him at work. He gave her a meal on the house, and she stayed until his shift ended.

“Peets is about as independent as Burger King these days, but I’m sure the hipsters will fall for it.” — COMMENTER ALAN AT DCIST.COM is convinced there

is a place in the D.C. coffee scene for Peet’s Coffee & Tea, which opened its first of 23 local locations last week on Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Many of the stores are former Caribou Coffee locations (Peet’s parent company bought Caribou in 2012), but DCist contributor Ashley Wetzel found little difference in Peet’s execution, suggesting prime real estate may be a big factor in helping the brand succeed here.

“Does this mean we can call him Bo Purr-ini?” — COMMENTER TOEMEK AT DEADSPIN .COM suggests a new nickname for

Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini, who led his team to the field before Saturday’s spring game while carrying a cat. Pelini hoisted the feline in response to the parody Twitter account @FauxPelini, which features a Photoshopped portrait of Pelini in a sweater holding a cat.

“Other things recently linked to an increased risk of death: * The pleasant smell of rainfall * Playing with adorable puppies * The wonder of a child’s smile … ” — COMMENTER PARRYLOST AT IO9.COM imagines a future where all wonderful things could kill you after a report in the American Journal of Epidemiology, which suggests that napping more than an hour each day could lead to an increased risk of early death. Researchers at the University of Cambridge asked more than 16,000 people about napping habits. Of the participants who died over the next 13 years, more of them were frequent nappers.

EASY

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You mustn’t believe that anything is a sure bet. Indeed, much of what you do at this time amounts to a crapshoot of sorts. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You want everything to line up a certain way so that you can tend to business in a tidy order. Expect the opposite! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You keep expecting someone to show up who can add a little spark to your day -- but when he or she comes, it’s something else you will get! CANCER (June 21-July 22) Now is no time to make demands on another that you wouldn’t have made on yourself. Fair is fair, no matter what the situation.

Friday’s Solution

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may be put in the awkward position of having to protect yourself and a rival at the same time; now is no time to take sides. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re on the fence about a certain issue that has you thinking one thing and then another in rapid succession. Try to clear your head. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Now that you’re nearing the end of a certain phase, you’ll be able to see just how you can get out of an unexpectedly sticky situation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The approach of something you’ve been long ignoring will change everything for you today — at least for the time being. Don’t resist.

And She Wonders Why No One in Yoga Class Likes Her

Johnny Depp has been subpoenaed in the trial of a woman who allegedly struck and killed a pedestrian while driving a limousine in 2009 in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, the woman claimed she was in a relationship with Depp at the time, and her lawyer wants Depp to testify that he doesn’t know her, proving that his client is insane.

Model Kate Upton, who has twice covered the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, told Britain’s The Sun newspaper that she hates her breasts. “I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs,” Upton said. She added that she wishes they were like earrings that she could remove “like they were clip-ons.” (EXPRESS)
